A Birds Eye View

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

When Boni contacted GROW South Dakota she was researching housing options.  She recently lost her husband of forty years, was living on a limited income and in a modular home that was in need of major repairs.  She was interested in purchasing a home through South Dakota Housing Development Authority’s Governor’s House Program.  The home would be placed on land that she currently owns, which had history of her grandparents residence.  Because her modular home was sold prior to obtaining the new home, she moved to an apartment in town.  Her dream was to return to the country.   GROW SD staff provided step by step coaching on the overall construction, financing and home ownership process.  Boni chose to utilize funding through the GROW SD Veterans loan program.  As she begins this next chapter of her life, Boni has a new home that she refers to as her “bird house” and is able to remain a “country girl”.   When asked about the process, Boni stated, “This was a fantastic deal how it all came together and the guys that delivered the house were very knowledgeable.”
